Bobbly Velvet Blanket

Those of you who are following me on Instagram or Facebook have been seeing my recent obsession with Bernat Velvet yarn. It’s seriously so addicting and I knew I would get hooked which is why I waited so long to give it a try. But now that I have tried, and loved it of course, I want it in every color way that’s available!

Blankets have never been my thing because I am impatient so I typically go fro quick projects. However I have been adventuring out and pushing my own buttons to tackle longer and more complex projects. I have to say, Bernat Velvet yarn makes it so easy to whip something up, even a blanket. I enjoyed making this baby blanket so much that I actually already have my next colors picked out for the next blanket I want to make. So if you have been tempted but keep stopping yourself, give in, you will not regret it.
